I just found some weird shit in the South China Sea that may or may not be related to the grand scheme of things (a thread):
I'm not going to put this in my main, pinned thread, since it might be completely unrelated, and I don't really know what to think of it. Have a look at all this, and more to come.
Parts of some of the islands are completely cropped out, like in the first image. I noticed two grey shapes in the deeper water, kind of oblong, like a military boat. I zoomed in on both, and one of them seems to be carrying some sort of unidentified cargo in the third image.
They could just be regular military ships, like I said, but that's not really the half of it. I also came across a few islands like this one, where most of it looks uninhabited, until you get closer, and it becomes clearer that there's structures and, maybe, a small population.
This is what confused me the most. When I zoomed out almost as far as it can go, the map started to distort and change colour. This is the end result. Meanwhile, the surrounding Chinese and Vietnamese territory looks completely normal.
Google Maps shows all of these islands as "Unavailable" and gives coordinates that are of no use to me. I don't know what to make of this, really, and I don't know if it has any actual importance, but I found it interesting.
